Which are the Primary Cosmic Rays?

Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)

Abstract

After the Second World War, now that the existence of cosmic rays was universally accepted, there were plenty of problems to solve: one was connected to the nature of mesons that brought to the discovery—after the muon—of the pion, the K mesons, and started in the 1950s the research on “elementary” particles. The latter was principally made using particle accelerators which allow studying easily in the laboratory of the different interactions by creating a number of events much greater than those present in cosmic rays. This kind of research was very expensive because to study the ever increasing number of particles with their large masses, greater and greater energies were needed and therefore bigger and bigger accelerators of ever increasing cost were built.
